About this book

Language: English

This invaluable compendium provides its readers with exhaustive details of 203 underutilized Himalayan wetland plants belonging to 156 genera under 66 families with predominance of polypetalous groups. It is supplemented with updated nomenclatural details, vernaculars, English, Hindi, Sanskrit and regional names, distribution, description, flowering and fruiting, habitat ecology, parts used, folk uses, chemical constitutents, biological activity, and uses in literature. Four useful appendices and total importance values of the wetland plants of the area are incorporated to enhance the value of the compilation significantly. It is hoped that this vital reference will appeal to students and researchers of ethnobotany, economic botany, bioresources, traditional universities, phytomedicines, Indian systems of medicines, plant genetic resources, biochemistry, biotechnology; pharmaceutical houses, scientists, policy planners, institutional libraries, and laymen alike. It will certainly become a standard reference for many decades.
